Pavement Whispers: Lost Palms Brewing Co. heads north for new Brisbane bar

Summer is approaching, which means pretty soon we’ll be flocking south for some sun, sand and, most likely, a sip at Lost Palms Brewing Co.’s Miami home. Well, the brains behind the popular pink-hued brewery are making it easier for Brisbane locals to put their lips to a pint of their killer brews, announcing plans to open a brand-new taphouse in the heart of Sherwood later this month. Here’s what you need to know ahead of the beachy beer hub’s arrival …

Since Lost Palms Brewing Co. opened its striking Miami brewery in the latter half of 2017, it has blossomed into a popular boozer frequented by locals and day-trippers alike. As its reputation for relaxed vibes and an inclusive drinking experience started to reach northern sippers in greater numbers, the team behind the millennial-pink institution started thinking about expanding the brand’s reach to Brisbane. During a thorough location search in 2019, a quirky space on Sherwood Road caught the crew’s eye. The 100-sqm building – formerly home to Asian-inspired restaurant Sweet n Spice – housed a sizeable kitchen, some big cold rooms and plenty of space to swing a schooner, and though original plans involved opening a bar and a production centre, the suburb’s rich history and storied heritage (plus a relative dearth of reliable drinking destinations nearby) tickled the team’s sensibilities. Plans swiftly evolved and soon enough the Lost Palms team were drawing up plans for a standalone taphouse in the heart of Sherwood, which is set to open at the end of October.

As a touchpoint for Lost Palms’ Brisbane-based following, the taphouse will be an extension of the brewery’s ethos, which is predicated on providing a sense of escapism. Much like at the brewery, guests are encouraged to get lost in the the moment as they’re transported mentally to a beach shaded by swaying palm trees – with a beer in hand, of course. Expect Lost Palms in Sherwood to be accessible to the broader community, with something for casual after-work drinks and the craft-beer-mad hop-heads alike. The bar’s taps will be pouring the brewery’s core range, which includes a sessionable larger, a crisp XPA, a mid-strength beer and a refreshing sour, while small-batch brews only available at the taphouse will cycle through regularly. Also available on tap will be a series of spirit-infused beery beverages, inspired by a previous collaboration with Dead Man’s Fingers rum that resulted in a spiked sour. The experimental drops will see Lost Palms beer mixed with various spirits, liqueurs, juices and coffee for a series of cocktail-like sips. Lost Palms’ own seltzer will be available alongside a tight wine list, too, while the kitchen will offer a range of burgers and bar snacks, though the kitchen will eventually expand the food offering to include beer-infused recipes and pairings. As for the space itself, expect a continuation of Lost Palm’s chosen aesthetic via a vivid colour palette of pink and neon.

Lost Palms Brewing Co.’s Sherwood taphouse will open in late October. Stay tuned for a closer look once it opens!
